Moment-Driven Workshop with Candice Cusic – Lina’s Portrait Photography in London

There’s never a time to stop learning, and having felt hugely inspired by award-winning Chicago photojournalist Candice Cusic on meeting her at the European Fearless Conference in March 2016, I signed up for her workshop in association with the Nine Dots conference last November. My day started stressfully, with missing two buses to the studio thanks to my Oyster card ‘hiding’ from me in my bag, and I hurried into the room just as things were starting.  Thankfully seeing some photographer friends and Candice’s immediate warmth in her introduction settled me in! (Oh and coffee.) I wasn’t expecting such a

Tipi Wedding

A Summer Tipi Wedding in Cambridgeshire

There is a certain quaint quality to a tipi on a green, and on Polly and Adam’s relaxed and happy wedding day their tipi looked fantastic set up by Horningsea Pavilion in Cambridgeshire. We loved the details at this wedding which complimented the tipi – and wish we had thought of the fantastic tea-towel wedding invite! One of our favourite catering teams  Puddini provided a deliciously tasty meal of gourmet burgers and cheesecake which was perfect alongside a nice cold beer. As the night cooled the fires were lit and the marshmallows came out. Look no further if you want

Cambridge Punting Pre Wedding Shoot

We’ve shot some fun Cambridge punting pre wedding shoot sessions in the past, but Ruth and Danny’s had a twist, this time our very own Tom was the initial chauffeur. We tried something different, he punted so that we could give Ruth and Danny a go at ‘driving’, and what a hilarious decision that was! As well as the happy couple cuddling up in the punt, we saw them both try their hand at punting for the first time, with varying results, as we think the punt Danny hit would agree! No one ended up with damp feet though, so

Hertfordshire Wedding

Laura & Lewis – Sunny Hertfordshire Wedding – Lina and Tom

We clicked with Laura and Lewis instantly when we met them, and after a fantastic Brighton pre wedding shoot with them we were so excited for their Hertfordshire wedding at the Tythe Barn at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel. Mother Nature played ball with a perfect sunny day to show off their gorgeously vibrant yellow and navy colour scheme, accented by beautiful sunflowers. Who doesn’t smile at a sunflower? Particularly lovely was fireman Lewis’ gift to Laura of seven heart-shaped padlocks to lock in each of the seven continents, starting on their South American honeymoon – swoon! Their Hertfordshire wedding was

A Winter Sunset Pre Wedding Shoot

This Cambridgeshire pre wedding shoot with Stacey and Gareth gives all the feels – a gorgeous winter sunset and two of the most gorgeous doggies you have seen. (Fact, we now want a Samoyed.) We went for a stroll around the nature reserve in Fen Drayton in Cambridgeshire and it provided a gorgeous backdrop which was beautifully lit by Mother Nature for us. Stacey and Gareth have such a relaxed and easy relationship, and clearly adore their furry friends.  They are having an intimate wedding at home, and have converted an old pig barn into a gorgeous wedding venue! We

A San Francisco Pre Wedding Shoot | Destination Wedding Photography

We’re at our happiest when we are travelling for our couples, and we had an amazing opportunity to provide San Francisco pre wedding photography for Pippa and Marty, thanks to perfect timing of our trip to the US last October! They live near the cosmopolitan city but are having a UK wedding celebration in Hertfordshire this month. Starting the shoot at a fantastic spot showcasing the city skyline, before heading across the water to beautiful Sausalito, we then made our way back to visit an amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Mother nature even provided us with the fog the

Epic High Rocks Wedding Photography

Claire & Stuart’s Disco High Rocks Wedding Photography

We are very lucky when it comes to our couples, in the sense that we seem to attract super people who could have easily been our friends for years, and Claire and [disco] Stu are no exception. Our first meeting went for hours which saw them having to peg it to the train station to make the last train. When they told us their wedding venue, the beautiful High Rocks in Tunbridge Wells, well our cup runneth over. I’m not sure I can actually describe it properly, so to quote from their website,  “Acres of breathtaking sandstone rocks interlinked with eleven bridges,
